BREWMUSKCLES (2687) - New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2013
a delightful Irish style ale with flavors of toast and caramel not too sweet and with a bit of soapy pine hop that with it’s caustic nature adds some body. still smooth this brew has a little fruit in the mix.

Transfer from BA review on 9-15-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a brown colored brew with light hints of red. Upon serving there was a nice just off white head of two fingers. The head faded relatively fast to leave a lighter level of lacing. Smell – The aroma was overall quite light. While light it was strongest of caramel and some roasted malt aromas. Mixed with these aromas is a light aroma of an earthy nature. Taste – The taste starts roasted and sweet with a good dose of caramel and some brown bread and roasted notes. As the flavor advances further the sweetness and roast fade slightly with hop flavors coming onto the scene. While the hop remains relatively light to the end where a more roasty and slightly earthy flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness with a medium level of carbonation. Both create a very easy drinking brew. Overall – An easy drinking beer with a moderate roast, sweet, and hop flavor. Nothing exceptional, but quite balanced and a good session.

On tap at a pub in Palm Beach Airport. Pours dark brown with reddish hues and a medium, tan head. The aroma is toffee and caramel malts, light earthy and floral hops. The flavor is sweet and malty, with faint bitterness in the finish. The palate is medium to heavy, sticky, and a fairly astringent. Overall, this is a malt bomb, with a fair hop profile for balance. Not too bad.

Not sure if it was the end of the night or the lines weren’t clean but i didn’t enjoy this as much as other folks. Had a slighty metallic and astringent taste to it. Nothing much redeeming except for the color was a very nice deep amber.
